Life is a song - My Own Accutane Log

Day 93

Bob, that sounds like a good idea. I didn't see the idea until know so I don't have a picture but it sounds like a lot of fun. I'll try to get one up soon!

Nothing to report really for my skin since yesterday so I'll cut to the chase: picture time.

Day 99

Big old LOL at the day 99. I was thinking of waiting until tomorrow but I figured you guys missed me too much to wait another day.

Nothing to report skin-wise. Cysts are gone on my left and there's nothing active on my face now. There's a small bump on my forehead but nothing worth noticing. Red marks aren't too bad either. The eczema or whatever that was on my forearms has disappeared entirely after being fried last Saturday.

These next two weeks are going to test my will to live, haha. SOOOOOOOO much work it's insane. Luckily, in a week from today I'll be entering my last week of school! I can't wait to be done. I decided I'm transferring which is what's making life so hectic right now. I have two tours Tuesday, an interview that same day and another interview Wednesday. I better get accepted into one of these schools, haha.

Anyway, I've got some pictures that I took post-wakeup (Aren't you guys so glad you're the first thing I thought of today?):

Wow, American accutane looks cool. Ours looks like birth control pills. Seriously.

Um. Also, I'm pretty sure when I saw 2 girls 1 cup I made a face that would have made babies cry. Also... I died a little inside.

Oh, and a creepy fact. I'm sitting about 200 kilometers from the town the 2girls 1cup girls live in.

That really is creepy.

My picture isn't an accurate depiction of my reaction though. I laughed pretty hard the first time I saw it.

Day 100

I really can't believe that I've reached triple digits! It's insane to think back to a few months ago and imagine how I wasn't even on Accutane. My face has come such a long way. There's still a lot left to go, but I feel like a million bucks compared to how I did back in January.

I'm too excited right now to say much more but anyway, thanks to everyone who's kept up with this thread. It's been amazing thus far to know I'm not alone.

Day 105

Hey all, just figured I'd stop by to say hey. This past week was so hectic - I'm glad it's over. I'm transferring out of my school so earlier on in the week I was going on tours and interviews. I'm hoping I get in somewhere because I really don't want to go back to the university I'm currently at, haha.

Work, work, work. That's all that's been going on lately. Finals begin next weekend and I have three papers due between next Wednesday and Thursday. I'll get it done but it's going to be one hell of a finale to my second semester. A week from today I will be nearly done with school!

Concerning my face, I had one or two zits pop up but as usual, nothing to fret about. I actually shaved with a razor and my face didn't get too irritated. I was tired of the electric shaver and I just wanted one good, clean shave. I'll have pictures up tomorrow morning after I wake up. I can sort of notice the small depressions in my skin from the acne. I don't think any of it is permanent scarring so I'm hoping it'll heal up in the next month or so. My red marks are also looking a lot better.

I'm happy overall. School is almost over, my face is clear for once and if things work out, I'll be at a school I like in the Fall. Anyway, I'm off to read a book a little and then chill out and get some rest.

Check back tomorrow when I'll have some nice pictures.

Day 107

Sorry for being so late with an update but schoolwork had a nice choke hold on me. Finished a 400 page book in two days and wrote an eight page paper on it. No problemo. Two more papers and I won't have another essay until next semester.

Anyway, I got around to shaving so there's not an overwhelming presence of blotchy facial hair for this week's pictures. Not much else to say, so here you go.

Oh and for Bob, I never got around to getting a picture of me doing my hobby so I snapped a quick goofy picture of me before I left for work today. I didn't realize how ridiculous I look in it until I just uploaded it.

Well, hope you all enjoy.

Day 115

So as of today I am officially done with my freshman year of college! I'm so happy to be done at last. My finals went great so I should end up with some good grades. I'm just glad it's officially summer for me now.

My skin had been looking good. Red marks are continuing to heal and I haven't had a breakout in a week or two. I had one tiny whitehead show up on my right side but it's already fading away. I'm really happy with the results now. Seems like everyday my skin is looking a little better.

I've been so busy, so that's the reason for the gap between updates. Plus there's not much to report these days regarding my skin. I have an appointment with my derm tomorrow so we'll see what he has to say.

Anyway, it's time for pictures. I'm pretty sure I took these yesterday morning, haha. Not really sure. This weekend flew by.

Day 121

Really meh past week. I got out of school. I drank for the first time since sophomore year in high school. I apparently am no longer speaking to my ex as of today. I manged to give myself a massive spot on my left cheek of raw skin.

I'll explain everything:

So I finished my first year of college and decided to hang out with my friends that same day. It was a party and it's important to note that I haven't drank in a few years. Nothing too personal, I just was never into it. I actually enjoyed myself. I didn't overdo it either. I know it's pretty awful for you, especially while I'm on tane, but I'm not drinking every night so I suppose I'm fine.

At that party was a girl I haven't spoken to in more than a year due to my ex. When my girlfriend and I were together, she left that this girl liked me. She also claimed the girl was nasty to her so I just stopped talking to her. We had been good friends before that. So now that my ex and I were no longer together, and I talked to the girl at the party, I friended her on Facebook. Apparently my ex saw that and completely disapproved of it. She called me out and we got into an argument. She said she wanted to just move on so I told her she should do what would make her happy. Later after work I picked up all of my old things. This is seriously so hard to deal with. It's like losing her all over again because now I don't even have a friend out of her anymore.

Then my face has had this irritating small lump on my left cheek for months now that would not go away. I came home one night and just squeezed the hell out of it. I'm so pissed at myself for doing it because my face looks awful once again. I don't know what happened, the bump went away but it looks like I took a layer of skin off around the area that my fingers were pushing down on. There's this raw looking skin that is a dark red now. I really can't stand how it looks. Hopefully it'll heal soon.

No pictures either, sorry. I just didn't feel up to taking any. I'll take some soon.

Sorry for the bad rant.

brent - I squeezed the hell out of my skin a couple of times on tane and I developed the same raw red marks on my face. What I did was just keep aquaphor on it all day and night, and in about 2 or 3 days the skin was totally back to normal. Good luck with it.

I'm sorry things are kind of sucking for you right now. Your skin looked really great in your most recent pictures, though. Hopefully the new redness on your cheek will fade quickly!
